Any update? How long can they keep him in an induced coma? Hoping for a full recovery...

Have a friend with similar symptoms after a bike accident.
She stayed in an induced coma for two weeks. They were taking her off after the first week, and then put her back in to see her response. She is fine now.

I hope Michael recovers from it, it is such a shame....

Same as yesterday. I guess the good news is that he apparently hasn't deteriorated. A friend of his said the family doc said he was out of danger, but the spokespeep shot that down immediately.

His wife has been at his bedside pretty much the entire time, apparently. That's very touching.

He was wearing a Go-Pro, the family has turned it over to investigators.

I must admit that I don't understand the point of the investigation. He was off piste, he fell over and he hit his head on a rock. Seems pretty simple.

Exactly, who gives a fuck. I rooted against him every race and this is whole thing is sad as hell to me. I hope he can pull through this. It's just awful.

I was not a Michael Schumacher fan by any stretch, yet I watched every race. He was the face of F1. I feel like I know him. I've never seen anyone that wanted to win as much as he did.
Fact is, he didn't need to do most of his antics. He would have been champion anyway.
Considering how much time he has been in my thoughts of late, I find he means more to me than I knew.

Good one, thanks. You can tell that the doctors are refusing to do anything but depict worse-case scenarios. I'm sure that part of that is not wanting to raise false hope, as the article says. But I suspect part of is also that they want to protect their professional reputation.

I guess two weeks in a coma is the minimum we should expect. I do wonder why hypothermia isn't dangerous in an induced coma, but would be to you or me when stranded outdoors.

Controlled environment. Dr's can control body temp while monitoring heart rate, blood pressure, brain activity, etc. Outdoors you'll continue to get worse until it is controlled.

You have to hope that the length of the coma at this point (18+ days) doesn't augur anything worse than just that they are trying to keep him stable. I didn't even start watching F1 until a few years ago, long past his peak, and it's still been devastating news in our household - motor racing is such a relatively small community, it really hits hard when tragedy strikes.

Sports Illustrated isn't exactly my go to source for racing news, but if their article is at all accurate, it doesn't look good for Shumi.

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/rac...#ixzz2qWudFLv5


If my memory serves, Chris da Matta was in an induced coma for only about 4-6 days before the docs brought him out. I know every patient and head injury is different, but if his doctors have been brining Michael back to semi conscious state and he is showing no response, that can't be a good sign.

*Not a doctor of any kind. **Haven't stayed a a Holiday Inn recently. ***Sure as hell hope I'm wrong.
